We are making another real estate related road trip today, so a short update is all we have time for:
There were 43,400 new cases of COVID-19 reported in the U.S. in the past 24 hours, the second consecutive day of more than 40,000. This gives the U.S. a total of 2,525,900 cases.
More than 9,000 come from Florida, where they have closed Miami Beach for the long Independence Day weekend. California is also experiencing a surge as there were 2,169 cases just in Los Angeles County.
The death toll continues to drop, even as hospitalizations rise, with only 512 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the past 24 hours. This brings the total deaths to 125,545.
Globally, there are now more than 10 million cases of COVID-19 and 499,306 deaths. These are reported cases and the true number are believed to be higher.
